Hello Lotters I know there's a lot people out here who had been responding a lot more to discussions rather than starting ones. most reasons was that they may not comment right away when they start a discussion because it's simply hard to comment back most specially if responses is almost the same. There was even a time where i just ignore the response if it's not related, or violation, or insane post. But sometimes, I don't get the idea of responding-commenting, or starter-responding conversation thing. though, in my experience I have learn something from the responder, I MEAN A LOT. I know to most commenting on response is for the sake of earning in most cases but what about the essence of it? but for now, All i can think of is that these are conversations. some people do consider it talking. Anyways, I do check my responded discussions, and see what is the comment on the Disc starter on me. Comment you later.

Hi Letran As you know I do not start many but respond to a great many. If I ever start a discussion, I leave the tab open and off I go to respond to others. I usually get quick responses so I go off and comment to my responders. I keep up very well with each and every response through out the day I am here. As for discussions I respond to, I pretty much know who will comment quickly and who usually does not, so there are many times I will leave tabs open to certain discussions I have responded to as there may be more to add. With time we get to know the patter of many here on myLot. I don't blame anyone for not commenting back right away. I do have all notifiers on and if the comment arrives later and or in a day or two I do read them. If there is something further to add I definitely will.

Hello hardworkinggurl, Yes, I see you more of a responder all the time which you are still good at after all this time. I'd so wish i can do the same thing you are doing now because am not sure if I can keep up. With regards to book marking I prefer to bookmark the discussions that i have left with some responders uncomment so that I can comment on them later.

I make it a habit to check on the responses once in a while because my responders might have questions that requires me for further elaboration or clarification. Because I believe that when I start a discussion some people may comment that I might miss and I am also interested in something that they could add to my posts.

I check for my responses at least one time per day and I answer them all or comment if needed. If they took the time to respond to my discussion then we should have the courtesy to respond. I do not just start discussions just to make money.

Absolutely. It matters a lot to truly care and not just post without even looking back and just be satisfied with the responses I get. Some might not be happy with my post and it is my duty to defend myself if anyone is dissatisfied.

Hello thetis, Some people can miss or loose confidence on commenting on responses because they other things in mind. I feel sad though if that is the case. well, it's alright, the important is they take there time. and I know those people who comment on their responses. well, some people can be sensitive, that's why am careful in making my post.

Hi LetranKnight Of course, I want that every starter must respond to the comments made onto his discussions. This is the way to get closer, make real friends and get things done for good Yes, I am guilty of not responding to my last discussion, but I had mentioned on that that I am away from normal MyLotting and as such the responders would ahev to bear the delay in my getting back. I will surely respond to the 20 responses that one got for me. Right now, from a cafe, I have limited time and in that I have other priorities to complete and also do some responses to my friends. Hope that this one time, my fault is ignored by my friends.

Hello thesids, How are you buddy? I was away too and not to mention not as fast as Iused to be. I couldn't even reach twenty responses in a day because I got so many things that needs to be thinking about in my head though.You're lucky that you're fault is ignored by friends, I don't think mine would be. and that's sad

Well, I can admit that there have been times that I have started a discussion on here and then never go back and check to see who has responded and respond back. I actually think this looses the purpose of starting a discussion as a Good way to learn from others is to keep the discussion going seeing where you can help.

It all depends on what it is and how important it is for them to respond back to me. I usually let them contact me in private instead of keeping the discussion window open a long time.

Hello Steph, As for me it's important for people to receive comments that is coming from me i guess. I never had people sending me private messages just to tell me there discussion since they made a lot.

When i start a discussion, i see to it that i respond back to the respondents. That way, i can acknowledge their responses and of course , i know that i get my earning that way. I see to it that whatever questions they may have back on me, i get to answer them whether on a later date. Discussions for me is a conversation. We can either make it as if we are chatting or simply writing. It's nice when it's like chatting. But yes, others just simply would respond for the sake of answering.

I read through the already started topics, when I find some of interest to respond to I write a comment. I try to make a repsond with quality. At least that is my intention to give useful knowledge for the one who has already started the topic. Sometime I find the one who has started the topic wants a positive feed-back or encouragement about some important life issue. I think when we create a two way communication it always come out some useful knowledge from it.

Hello QeeGood, That's good to know that you do your best to have a quality response to that discussion. what ever knowledge or what we know about the subject or based on what we experienced. I believe most users wants a positive feed back on their discussions, it's rare that people gets to respond back with criticism

I never wait for anything to be honest…By that I mean that I contribute to a discussion whenever I feel I can add something useful to the post and although I am delighted it the topic started makes a comment to my response I don’t keep track nor wait for them because I don’t have the time and I appreciate that others may be busy too. I am always happy to have a so called ‘conversation’ here of course. It’s all good fun.
